The United Diocese of Argyll and The Isles is one of the seven historic Dioceses of the Scottish Episcopal Church.  With Cathedrals in Oban and on the Isle of Cumbrae, the Diocese extends from Iona as far inland as Glencoe and from Lewis and the Western Isles south to Kintyre and Arran. This breathtakingly beautiful region is covered by many Episcopalian churches, each offering a warm welcome with its own unique character.
